Does the money from kaparos have to go to a certain kind of tzedakah, or can it go to any charity cause?

Answer:

The money should be given for the benefit of the poor, and not for shuls and other causes. If the money will benefit the poor, there is no difference regarding the type of benefit.

Sources: See Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim 605:1, and other poskim there, who mention only that the money should be given to ani’im, meaning that it should be donated for the benefit of the poor.
